3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 9/30/12 from a waxed and capped 650mL bomber bottle, thanks to Baker for the trade. Pours nearly black, dark brown with an average tan head that slowly recedes to thin, bubbly lace. The nose is straightforward dark roasted coffee and chocolate porter with plenty of vanilla and caramel bourbon. The flavor is very dry with tons of dark chocolate and coffee, finishing with some vanilla, caramel, and milk chocolate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter dark chocolate and vanilla bourbon finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is very nice with a huge, long lasting, foamy, tan head, some lace, and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is mainly chocolate with a little roast, vanilla, and bourbon in the background. Flavor’s like nose, sweet bitter up front, soft carbonic tang, bourbon clashes with other qualities in finish. Body is a bit soft. One and done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark chocolate black, inky but not thick. One inch of fuzzy cocoa-colored head sticks to the sides in thick globs. The nose is chocolate through and through. Cocoa powder and nibs, a hint of espresso, some vanilla, a touch of cola. Layered. Not a heavy flavor. Smooth cocoa leads, with bitter burnt roast rolling in soon after. A hint of vanilla and a touch of toasted wood in the form of coconut. Medium-light body ,mild carbonation.
Inoffensive and smooth, though not overly flavorful. Like a rock rubbed smooth by the lapping of a chocolate river.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Dark brown pour with no head. Aromas are chocolate milk and vanilla. Tastes the same. Light to moderate sweetness. Just a touch of roast and oak in the finish. Good but I get very little bourbon in this.

Draft. Aroma of LOTS of chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, some red wine, and finally some woodiness that seems to lift all of the beer?s sweetness off of the palate. Not super-complicated, but super good.
